Any reason to scan gas giants?

StarControl II (these days called Ur-Quan Masters) has quite a lot of grinding in terms of scanning planets for minerals, life forms and energy beacons. Gas giants seem to always produce empty scans. Is there a reason to ever visit\scan gas giants in StarControl II?


In general, no, there is no reason to visit gas giants. There are no resources to be found on them.

However, there is one important exception: One single gas giant in the galaxy should be visited as it holds something special.


The Slylandro are the only species who have a gas giant as a homeworld: Beta Corvi IV. Visiting this planet is necessary to put a stop to the random attacks by the red tumbling drones.
